Geodesycourse, Exercise 7.



The exercise has the purpose of showing how distances, directions (angles) and vertical angles (height differences) are mesured with a Total Station.

The exercise takes place in Buddinge. If rain bring umbrellas.





1. Directions and distances are observed in a small triangle, for example with the instrument in the point 1-13-821, see the sketch, and with the prism in two other points with known coordinates. Make sure there is free sight between the points.

The coordinates have been obtained from KMS, and are given in Table 1 in System 34, Sjælland. The program didr has been used to calculate all distances and directions between all points. Angles are then obtained by subtracting two directions.

Compare the observed angles, distances and height differences with the calculated values.
